Residential conveyancing guide

  • Finding a solicitors quote - Whilst it is possible to undertake the procedure yourself, the vast majority of us will not have the legal expertise, experience or time, and instead instruct a solicitor. Find quotes with no move, no fee protection, but be sure to check the small print for any hidden additional fees.

  • Instructing your chosen solicitor - Before your lawyer can commence the legal procedure, it will be necessary to instruct them. It is key to ensure that you read in detail the Highbridge solicitors terms of business accompanying the quote for any hidden costs such as charges for acting on a leasehold purchase.

  • The pre-contract stage - The purchasers conveyancer negotiates the draft contract with the sellers conveyancing solicitor. Also enquires are made. The final version is agreed, and preliminary dates may also be agreed for exchange and completion.

  • Carrying out a HomeBuyer Report - A good Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Highbridge will determine any structural problems e.g. flashing problems and damp. Ham hill stone is one of a number of a local factor affecting Somerset.

  • Searches - Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the four normal searches ordered by solicitors, and they look into issues including details of conservation area controls. Possible additional non-standard searches for homes in Highbridge could include a Tin Mining Search.

  • Exchanging contracts - Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer hands over the agreed deposit (usually 0.1 of the sale price, but this is negotiable).

  • On Completion - Usually on a set day, the buyer can then collect the keys to the property after the sellers conveyancing solicitor certifies that they have received the balance (less the deposit) of the purchase price.
